When Is The Best Time Of Year To Have Your Boiler Serviced?

Your boiler helps to heat your home year-round and therefore maintaining it and ensuring it stays in great working condition is essential. Working out when the right time to have your boiler annually serviced can be tricky though.

Your boiler is used more during certain periods of the year than others, therefore you may find that you notice more issues arising during the winter than in the summer.

This might not be due to the fact your boiler is on though, it can actually be because it hasn’t been used for a while. Leaving your boiler over the summer without much use can allow issues to arise unnoticed, leaving you stuck in the mud when winter rolls around.

Therefore, having your boiler serviced and checked during the summertime may be a better idea than waiting until you are using it more frequently in the winter.

This is because your boiler will have been used constantly throughout the late autumn, winter and early spring.

You may then have chosen to turn it off or significantly reduce its use as summer rolled around, meaning any issues which occurred during the winter may not have been noticed.

This can lead to them being left unfixed until you start using your boiler more frequently again, as you may not notice them during the summer months when your heating is turned off more than it is turned on.

Having your boiler serviced during the summer allows you to find and address any issues without having to worry about the boiler being out of action, leaving you cold during the winter chill.

By having your boiler serviced during the summer, you can also be assured that come wintertime you can heat your home with no issues and know your boiler is in great health.
